Pretty sure the grips on the pistol in question are what I call "Standard". Same as UFX, Field Target, Hunter and almost all Buck Marks made before they offered the Rifle and Challenge. The...

Good morning! 10 responses may provide 11 opinions:)

I use dot sights for most of the shooting I do. Tube-type dots are quicker than holos for me with regard to getting the dot on the target. ...

I have both brands, but lost interest in the Rugers when they came out with the MKIII's. The Buck Marks have been great pistols for me, doing mostly bullseye competition. For the last year or two...

True. I understand that, and there could be a slight benefit. My trigger finger occupies 3/4" of the trigger. Although I do prefer flat or less curved triggers, being able to move my finger down...

I have a 4" barrel that seems more ammo sensitive (SV ammo) that the rest. It seems like with some SV rounds need the extra inch or so to build sufficient pressure to cycle reliably.
